I have created 3 cards for our Cards for Kids Valentine's Day Blog Hop!

I created this Lots of Love Card using EK Success Daisy Scallop border punch and the Plantin SchoolBook Cricut Cartridge.  I used a 4.25"x5.5" pink card base, pink striped patterned paper, and a strip of dark pink paper.   I cut the hearts at 1.75", 1.25" and .75".  I embossed each one with a different texture, inked all my edges and used foam to pop up all the hearts.

My second card came about as I was playing experimenting with some different sized pink buttons.

I used a Martha Stewart corner punch to add some extra interest to the patterned paper.

This third card is by far my daughter's favorite!

For this Elmo Valentine I used the Cricut Cartridges Elmo's Party and Plantin Schoolbook (for the heart balloons).  I also used some twine and red Stickles and popped all my cuts up on foam for added dimension.

I have some blog candy to give away also.  I have a small collection of Valentine's Day themed items.  To be eligible for my prize, please leave me a comment here on my blog (you do not have to be a follower but I would appreciate if you were).  If you would like to increase your chances, make a card (as many as you would like) and link it up.  I will use to choose a winner on Feb 10th.

Thank you for checking out my Cards for Kids Valentine's Day card! Please continue along to the next blog and check out all of the wonderful projects that our designers have created!
